abstract
Research to be addressed is the issue of the clinical importance and relevance of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) and National Asthma Education and Prevention Program’s Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma. Specifically, the research will address whether or not the new guidelines will change therapy based on a patient’s asthma classification to obtain greater control. Data being used was collected at the Downtown Clinic (DTC) of Laramie, Wyoming. Asthma affects nearly 22 million individuals in the United States alone, causing 3,816 deaths in 2004. Asthma is an incurable disease state that requires lifelong treatment. The NHLBI and National Asthma Education and Prevention Program provide guidelines in attempt to better treat this condition. Understanding how to adequately treat asthma is important in clinical practice. Comparing the 2001 guidelines to the new 2007 asthma guidelines will help determine if patients are being adequately treated and if the changes made in the new guidelines will make significant impact on clinical practice. This paper will attempt to determine whether the new asthma treatment guidelines will significantly change clinical practice and the treatment of asthma using data collected from the DTC’s patient population.
